OXFORD, Miss. – The Ole Miss softball program is excited to announce it will be holding its first softball alumni weekend Nov. 9-11.
Several events have been planned throughout the course of the weekend, and the Rebels are excited to see everyone come back to Oxford to not only enjoy old friendships and share great memories, but to also get to know the current Rebels roster.
“My staff and I are very excited to host the first softball alumni weekend,” Ole Miss head coach Windy Thees said. “Being a new staff, we are thrilled to meet the players who have built the base for our softball program. There is a pride in every Ole Miss alumnus that is unique and strong. Julie, Mike and I look forward to building relationships with the past players and creating a family tradition that will endure for the classes to come.”
On Nov. 9, Ole Miss will play an alumni game at 7 p.m. CT. The alumni will then get ready for the football game against Vanderbilt on Saturday with their own tent in The Grove. The fun and busy weekend will conclude with a Sunday brunch at the Inn at Ole Miss.
The Rebels open the 2013 season and the second year of the Thees Era on Feb. 7 with a trip to the Aloha State for the Hawaii Paradise Classic in Honolulu. Ole Miss will play in four tournaments at the start of the season, including its own tournament, the Red and Blue Classic, from Feb. 22-24.
